About the licks...

Quote -  Louise Bourgeois @tatemodern exhibition photo - Fausta Joly

Founded by writer and creative - Fausta Joly - Joly Licks is a budding arts organisation looking to spread the word that creativity equals sanity. In this crazy mixed up world we're living in, nothing can be more encouraging than the communities we can build especially by coming together in the name of art! With work shops and Arts Festivals in the pipe line, Joly Licks aims to become the Ted Talks for making and doing - not just discussing. Being at the very early stages of development, it's up to you to share the word and ethos of a Joly Licks event so book a ticket and come along for the ride!

Sip + Rhyme

A fantastic opportunity to hone your skills as a poet with useful tips to find inspiration all while sipping with a great group of people. Even if you haven't picked up a pen since school, you won't want to put it down after a #sipandrhyme event! Follow us on Eventbrite for all updates and tickets.

The Sane Asylum

We are building a platform by artists for artists. Your art is the only communication you need and with everything that's going on out there, it's about time we all got together to honour the talent within and around us. Get ready for an arts festival that will leave you wanting to pick up that pen or camera and start creating yourself!

So much in store for 2020, from #writeforartssake to workhshops for kids with Lit.Licks

JOLYLICKS2020 set off with a bang! Along with Lemniscate and Salon39 we hosted a Virginia Woolf bonanza at the end of January. Did you know that she shares her birthday with Burns night? Invited guests were asked to join for dinner as we spoke of her work, swapping readings from The Moth and Mrs.Dalloway as well as our own writings, inspired by VW. 


Since then, we've been focusing on Lit.Licks, teaming up with Unitas Youth centre for a poetry workshop. On the leap day, this year we launched our first: #WriteForArtsSake. Bringing a Sip + Rhyme spin to exhibitions - responding to the art and artist. We've also partnered with the Mothership Group venues to bring you some tippy top JLicks events throughout the year so stay tuned! Please get in touch if you would like to commission a workshop or find out more about LIt.Licks.
